Marathon Swims, billed as the ultimate swimming challenge, returns on 10-11 November 2018 to the London Aquatics Centre, home of swimming during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Marathon Swims reportedly sold out in its first year, in November 2017, and the event organisers expect it to do so again in record time. This year the event has added an extra day to give participants a choice of race days and increase capacity due to expected high demand.

The swimming marathon distance first came to prominence as a 10k open water event at the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008. The marathon swim has been a key spectacle in the Olympic schedule ever since with races in the Serpentine (London 2012) and at Copacabana Beach (Rio 2016). Leveraging this momentum, Marathon Swims has redefined the challenge as an indoor, pool-based Marathon 10k, Half Marathon 5k and a 1k Challenge distance event.
